    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, varying shifts, ability to lose weight

    Cons

    Where do I start...
    -poor leadership skills
    -inefficient equipment (I.E. scanners and rabbit
    -safety concerns or issues regarding improving safety are often ignored
    -very limited training, if any real training at all
    -promoting up doesn't come with pay raises or any other incentives, it's voluntary
    -logic is hardly ever used to increase efficiency and reduce congestion on the floor
    -very high attrition rate

    Advice to Management

    The sortation facility would be much more efficient and may actually ret as in employees if everyone in the gallery didn't run around like a headless chicken. So many things can be done to help worth better flow of the warehouse

    Pros

    -gift cards
    -my team manager and esa
    -co-workers

    Cons

    Job started out good as a dispatch associate and then took a turn for the worst. We were told the day before that we would change to cx calls. Which was fine but the training was no help at all. Expectations are high for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    -Communication is key
    -integrate in-depth training resources rather than sending us to the dogs.

    Disclose full employment information to employees. Tell your operations managers their shift and work expectations before trying to break up families.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Medical benefits, 401k. That's it really.

    Cons

    Terrible management. HR is also terrible. Alot of kids coming straight out of college with no job experience and having them go manage a team of 30+ people. Turn over rate is very high. 13k people have been in and out of this building in only 3 years of it being opened. If you are not meeting demand, you will get numerous warnings and eventually get written up on your way out of the door. Physically demanding job of walking 13-15 miles a day with a "climate controlled" building which is always warm, especially on the top floor. They expect way too much for a low paying job. I DO NOT recommend this place of employment. Either Jeff Bezos doesn't care for his employees or people tell him everything is fine and dandy on entry level positions. Amazon is slowing taking over the world.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates.
    Stop pushing us to the limit.
    Stop favoritism.
    Should be quality over quantity but it's not
    Improve your communication, it's terrible.
    Talk to your associates on a personal level to gain trust.

    Hard work pays off, good managers do exist, AMAZING BENEFITS!

    Work life balance i s hard to obtain in fulfillment centers, cut throat competition

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your employees are not just numbers and truly care about them. Most can tell when you are just pretending to care.
